Comcast has demanded NFL Net cease its public encouragement of customers to sack Comcast service—or else. Perhaps Jerry Jones’ continuous railing of cable in recent weeks spurred the dour discourse after months of tension. The net’s actions "constitute a material violation of [NFL] Network’s contractual obligations…and tortious interference with Comcast’s contractual relations with its customers," wrote Comcast evp, content acquisition Madison Bond, arguing that Comcast’s right to carry the net on a sports tier is being compromised. The letter demands written confirmation that the net has ceased encouraging defection by Nov 23, and intimates legal action if there’s no compliance. "Comcast reserves all of its rights to seek relief for damages that Comcast has already incurred as a result of [NFL] Network’s latest breach," reads the letter. The MSO’s legal arguments "are without merit," said a net spokesperson.
